Attached is the home learning for the next 2 days. This includes comprehension, sentence structure work, English, Maths and Science. The English resources are for the rest of the King Arthur unit (until Thursday). Please do not become overwhelmed by the volume of documents – this is just to make it as easy as possible for you to access what the children would have been doing in school. The science activities might be difficult to do at home as they include practical tasks however it provides an idea of what they should be learning about. Should you have any questions, please contact me via the Class Dojo app. The children can send pictures of their work to me there and I can provide feedback.
Please take full advantage of the suggested websites given to you in addition to Matheltics and purple mash.
Spring Term 2020
This term, Year 3’s topic will be volcanoes, earthquakes and natural disasters. Within this topic, the children will be learning about a variety of places where volcanic eruptions occur in addition to how volcanoes are formed. The relevant science topics to be covered are ‘Rocks and Soils’ and ‘Plants’. In PE, the children will be participating in Dance, Tennis and Net games in addition to funtrition sessions until February half term. In RE, we will be covering Islam which builds upon learning from Key Stage 1.
In Maths, we will be covering:
- Problem solving
- Angles and lines
- Statistics and bar charts
- Multiplication and division in 2s,3s,4s and 8s
In Literacy, the children will be learning about

- Poetry such as Haikus and Kennings
- Alternative versions to fairy tales
Whilst we endeavour to hear children read as much as possible, it is expected that children read at least 4 times per week with an adult. This should be recorded in the children’s reading record. Children are also expected to learn the Year 3 and 4 statutory spellings to complement the spelling sessions taught in school.
